Sometimes life takes you by surprise with little, unplanned treasures.
And this touching performance is one of those moments. It reminds us all that God is the center of everything!
Impromptu Balcony Performance Goes Viral
Beautiful voices from this talented choir mingled together to deliver the powerful lyrics of the song:
"As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord, show me the way!"
High school students from all over the state come together to make up the Colorado All State Choir. And today, the students’ incredible gift for singing and performing is on full display!
The members of this treble ensemble step outside of their hotel rooms. They gather together and as far up as you can see, the students line the hotel balcony. Then, they start singing a cappella.
Together, their voices and the acoustics of the hotel create a hauntingly beautiful version of the iconic hymn, ‘Down To The River To Pray'.
"O sisters, let’s go down,
Let’s go down, come on down
O sisters, let’s go down
Down in the river to pray"
There’s no question, this talented group of students sure knows how to put on a show! Despite coming from all over the state, these singers all join together for this stunning performance. And it’s touching people all over the country!
This a cappella performance has received over 7 million views on social media. Give it a listen and you’ll understand why in no time!
